I have been doing some research on methods to improving HTTP and TCP performance on my terminal servers. I have 12 terminal servers that run stable, but are lacking when running web applications particularly web applications that are built in JSP.
Is there a list of must "hacks" to improve tcp and http responses on an aplication server? I know on my psersonal system I will typically modify basic registry settings such as MaxConnections and SynchMode5 which does help at times. On the TCP side would it make sense to apply settings like DefaultTTL, Disable PMTU Discover, PMTUBHDetect, TcpMaxDupAcks, Tcp1323Opts, SackOpts and/or MTU?
Any input in the matter would be greatly appreciated.
